“Return to to an old friend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2010

We revisited the Empire for three days in May and enjoyed the stay. A great asset of the hotel is the staff they are friendly always helpful and seem to enjoy working at the Hotel. This is borne out by the number of long service staff who greet you with a smile and a welcome
We had a mini suite which was well appointed and clean and fitted out with the usual Empire style furniture . For large people like myself {6'6'' ] the open plan Delux rooms are more suitable.
There has been a significant extension to the facilities including a high quality spa and these have been well blended in to the hotels existing environment
The meals are conventional witha good range of choice and daily changes. The meals are well prepared and the dining room service is very good as is the quality of the food. We found the meals provided excellent value.
The lounge and bar areas are large and comfortable though ssome of the period furniture could do with some renovation. This also applied to some of the bedroom furniture though the beds were modern 5' double of excellent quality.
Car parking is spread around the hotel and on first visit the reception staff are very helpful
It is one of the few hotels in Llandudno which has adequate parking spaces.
Though the peir,promenade and sea is close none of the rooms have good views.
It is worth knowing that the annexe No72 has spacious rooms but unlike the hotel itself no lifts.
In our opinion the hotel offers good value for money

Stayed here for the week on a business trip at Number 72 and couldnt fault a thing. The hotel is lovely, staff are lovely and the food is second to none. Its very quiet at night so if its a good night sleep you are looking for then the Empire is for you.

stayed in room no 56, mini-suite?? bathroom light flashing, silicone come away from the bath, noisy fan from the kitchen below all night. breakfast was the worst let down for the price,a full English only included 1 piece of bacon and sausage what does the light breakfast include?? other hotels we have stayed in offer as much as you want. For a 4 star rating you would expect at least two or three pieces of each. In a back street b&b you would only expect that with paying £35.00 a night but not £125.00 a night! The empire hotel is supposed to be 1 of the best in Llandudno if not the best.

Enjoyed the 2 day break over the Easter holidays.
Stayed in No.72 which was great. The only issue was the noisy floorboards of the room upstairs.
Staff brilliant without being over fussy. Food good, as was the wine list.
Hoping to try Osbourne House next time it looks wonderful. Maybe next time.

Just spent a wonderful weekend at the Empire Hotel in Llandudno. The food was excellent and the service staff helpful and professional. The management team could not do enough for us the whole weekend. Can't wait until our 'guaranteed' next visit.

Had quite a visits to Empire over the last 10 years but this time we were very dissapointed in the fact that the management were not flexible in their application of the evening menu. which is is a fixed priced 3 course deal.
My mum (88 y ears of age) only wanted a soup plus a few chips - yet they insisted on charges us for 3 courses. We left and found the St Georges Hotel most accommodating!.

I have been staying at this hotel for 30 years and love everything about it. The food, the accomodation, the staff and leisure (I remember when the first pool was being built !!!). I would recommend to anyone to anyone for some rest, relaxation and good food + wine.
